I can't explain it, but suddenly the buffer that I'm using loses its
separate tab in tabbar, as if its suddenly created a frame for itself.
It was most disturbing when it happened.

I'm using tabbar from MELPA. I have tried Emacs-27 tab-mode but it
seemed to me that it wouldn't fit my case, where my tabbar groups all
org-mode buffers, and ditto my gnus mail buffers.

I'm not convinced that I am actually using vlf. I'm configured to use
files up to 20mbs, and if necessary I could include a greater amount,
after all I do have 64gigs of ram available!

I think that I've found a way round the problem, where I use just one
file for my converted website to org-mode buffer, but I can toggle
tabbar off, so I only show the buffer that I'm working on, and when
necessary I'll call the bibliography to the right of buffer, and also
the glossary underneath my main buffer. And then when I need to I can
just toggle tabbar back on again, and it all works nicely again.
